Interview with Witold Lutoslawski


Published March 5, 1991


Charles Amirkhanian interviews Polish composer and conductor, Witold Lutoslawski. They discuss the political changes in Poland after the end of the Cold War and how that effects the ability to criticize the government and change the way in which the arts are supported. Lutoslawski also talks about his composition, Mi-Parti, which was to be performed by the San Francisco Symphony soon after this interview. Charles then quizzes the maestro about the role of emotions in music, his opinion of some lesser known Polish composers, and the importance of silence while composing. Lutoslawski also discusses the difficulties he experienced as a composer in Poland during and soon after World War II. (- from the KPFA Folio)
